Firstly drink a glass of warm water or some hot soup before feeding whenever possible. certain foods that help in milk formation are Jaggery, coconut, garden cress seeds, methi gum, Ajwain, saint, dry fruits, dates, makhana and seeds.U can make traditional laddoo, porridge, Panjiri or anything using this.Eat small meals with minimum spices. drink lots of warm fluids. try to increase the frequency of feeding. This is the best way to increase milk production through demand.

Your baby should not be bottle fed and by giving breast milk, your milk should increase. Moreover you can try taking lactare capsules and see. Even if you give give formula fed, do not give it in bottle and instead feed with a spoon.

Nutritional Requirements For Healthy Breastfeeding!

Nutritional Requirements For Healthy Breastfeeding!

Post pregnancy, your first priority is to lose the extra weight you gain during pregnancy. Even though it is important to get healthy and toned again, it is equally important that you do not skip on nutrients. Your body is now using all its resources to produce breastmilk for your baby. What you eat doesn’t always affect the breast milk’s quality, but you do need to eat the right things to stay healthy.

Here are some diet tips you can follow - 

1. Stop counting calories: Generally, women who breastfeed need to eat 500 calories more than women who aren’t. In other words, you need to consume 2000-2500 calories every day. However, you don’t need to count calories throughout the day. Instead, you should eat when you are hungry. Also, the right number of calories depend on how your metabolism works, your weight and how regularly you breastfeed.

2. Lose the weight slowly and steadily: Honestly, pregnancy weight takes at least a year to get rid of. So don’t rush, and give in to crash diets to lose weight. A sudden weight loss and calorie drop can affect your milk supply. Instead, focus on losing 1 pound every week.

3. Choose healthy foods: Complex carbs, vitamins and good fats are important for a healthy diet, since you need the nutrition and durable energy to sustain not only yourself, but also the newest addition to your family.

4. Eat fish-but carefully: Fish such as salmon is good for you, since it contains DHA (Omega 3 fatty acids) which has an important role in the development of your baby’s brain and eyes. Limit your consumption however, since maximum fish contain mercury, which in high amounts, can harm your child.

5. Take your vitamins: Don’t stop taking your prenatal multivitamin and mineral supplements. Calcium, vitamin D and DHA supplements can enrich your diet and help you nurse your baby better.

There is no number as such. But intake of analgesics should be limited as it causes liver toxicity.

Place a heating pad or hot water bottle on your lower back or abdomen. Rest when needed. Give yourself a little massage where it hurts. Exercise-- get moving to relieve symptoms. Walking, running, yoga etc. Women who exercise regularly often have less menstrual pain. To help prevent cramps, make exercise a part of your weekly routine. Avoid foods that contain caffeine. Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol (if you do) for this homeopathic treatment is very effective for more details you can consult me.
